Rumors of a super-collaboration between Thomas Bangalter, Gesaffelstein and Lil Nas X have gone into overdrive following one fan’s account of speaking with the Daft Punk producer.
After attending a recent performance by Bangalter, Leó Hamy told the Daft Punk Facebook community that he asked the legendary producer point-blank about the rumored collaboration.
Speculation surrounding the circumstances of the music have caught traction in recent weeks as bits of evidence have surfaced online, but the rumor mill actually began churning as early as last summer, when fans spotted someone who looks like Bangalter in the background of a Lil Nas X Instagram Story.
In response to Hamy’s question, he said Bangalter told him, “Gotta be patient,” all but indicating there’s legitimacy to the high-profile rumor. The fact that Gesaffelstein also has a new album on the way—as previously confirmed by Skrillex—adds more credibility to the notion that this track may not be far from reach.
